We love because he first loved us

God loved you first.
No matter what you experience in this world or who you end up with, just remember that God loved you first.
Nothing can change that.
No one can separate you from the love of Christ!

1 John 4:19
19 We love because he first loved us . 20If anyone says, “I love God,” but hates his brother, he is a liar; for whoever does not love a brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21This is the commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.

Essentially, this verse says that because God loved us first, we can love others. And if we truly love God, we will also love our fellow human beings. This is because God’s love is the source of all love and the foundation of all our relationships.
